So, you did get a warning about decaying out of platinum?

I got platinum in late May. I did play a bit in June and I remember receiving a warning sometime in July saying I needed to play a game to avoid decay. I did so and my rating did not change. However it has been awhile since that warning and I did not receive any additional warnings about decay, and now I am here. I believe I had something like 50 LP in Platinum V so it must've been at least 5 weeks since my last ranked game.

So to answer your question no I did not receive a warning for this decay.

I would love it if you guys reversed my decay and put me back where I belong. Even if you can't (or won't), I think it's more than fair that the system makes it a lot more obvious that decay is coming instead of one small warning on the pvp.net client.

I remember Halo Reach having a similar ranking system. I also remember hating it, because I got all the way to Onyx then found myself at gold by the end of the "Season" because I stopped playing for a while. Never bothered with it again, because it turned a game from 'fun' into 'work'. Just a big pain.

I'm not so sure decay works as intended. If you are in a league. you can lose as much as you want and you won't drop division. If you can't or don't want to play ranked then you get decayed into a lower tier. It seems like such a hassle to have to play a ranked game just to maintain a league...

perhaps decay should be tied to falling lower in divisions IE 1 - 2- 3- 4 - 5 if you don't play. And if you are in 5th division of a league then decay should affect your MMR clamp so you don't get as much back when you win until the system knows you aren't rusty and need to be where you are at.
